"Ruess' letters are stunning, alive with achingly poetic descriptions of the land. We're left with a moving, ghostly vision of a young artist at odds with a society growing out of control as he escapes farther and farther into an unforgiving wilderness."--Backpacker Magazine, about EVERETT RUESS: A VAGABOND FOR BEAUTY. While most of Everett's lyrically written, essay-type letters have been made public in EVERETT RUESS: A VAGABOND FOR BEAUTY (Gibbs Smith, Publisher), his only existingjournals--for 1932 and 1933--have never before been published. These journals were his companions, a place where he confided his joys, his regrets, his complaints, and his aspirations, as well as some exciting adventures. They also provide us with insight into Everett's deeper feelings toward the complexity, the frustrations, as well as the beauty of life.
